‘M.P. CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan Used Rs 30 Lakh From Roads Fund To Buy SUV For Personal Use’
Madhya Pradesh government has refused to comment on this matter.
Congress leader of opposition, Ajay Singh on Friday accused Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan of buying Toyota Fortuner SUV worth Rs 30 lakh from the fund of ‘Kisan sadak nidhi’ for personal use.
Addressing the assembly during the ‘parallel monsoon session’ on Friday, Singh said, ” It was unfortunate that when farmers were committing suicide in the state a Fortuner vehicle worth Rs30 lakh was purchased for the CM as he happened to be the co-chairman, empowered committee of Kisan sadak nidhi.”
He added, “A sum of Rs 32,070 was spent through an ‘RTO agent’ to get a VIP registration number of the vehicle.”
Kisan sadak nidhi is a fund maintained by Mandi Board of Madhya Pradesh for construction and upgradation of roads and bridges in rural areas, reported Hindustan Times.
